OKay its is two stages upload and then import using website.

FTP or upload stage.
sign up to archive for your login/pass
(You should have already done this)
get a FTP client program
graphical or command line your choice

commandline
-use client to connect to
movies-uploads.archive.org
-login with your username and password from website
-set binary mode (IMPORTANT do not skip or file will be trash on remote server)
bin
-make a directory
mkdir myfile
-change directories
cd myfile
- change local directory to where file is contained)
lcd /mystoragedir
-put file
put myfile.mp4
-exit
quit

Note:
if you want to run a local command prefix it with ! example !dir

I wrote a small shell script to do this as a batch process for many files in linux.
posting in case anyone might possibly find useful.

if I have several quicktime files in a directory usage would be
ls *.mov | xargs -l ftpup

of course script must be in your path.
Also you must replace username and password in script with the correct values for your situation.

contents of ftpup script
-------------------------------------

part=`echo $1 | cut -f1 -d"."`
ext=`echo $1 | cut -f2 -d"."`

cat >> ftp_commands << EOF
bin
mkdir $part
cd $part
put $part.$ext
quit
EOF

ncftp -u username -p passwd movies-uploads.archive.org < ftp_commands >> out
rm ftp_commands

You can also check out this page for more info:

If you're not so sure about the commandline stuff and are using Windows, then I recommend downloading SmartFTP (http://www.smartftp.com) and using that.

Thanks,
Simon.
